Life Lessons on Becoming One of the Greatest Celebrity Chefs
Most people want to make a name, to be the greatest. But too few would truly become one. Why? Simply because there are a handful people embarking on this quest, fewer will continue to pursue it and much less will drive themselves towards the end of their quests. Unfortunately, this is how simple things are.
That case also applies to all other situations in life. Most people dream of a good life, of opulence, of greatness. But you will only find a handful people ever arriving at these dreams. Again, this is because only the bravest and the most faithful will ever want to take the risks and defeats of pursuing a dream. Most would content themselves in settling with the bread crumbs and disregard the great loaf of bread that waits for them to be grabbed. Many are cowered by the prospect of failure but are not encouraged by the possibilities of success.
This attitude also explains why those people who have really worked hard to reach the greatness they have worked for are usually humble and dignified. They are humble because they find arrogance humiliating. They are humble because they have learned that jumping towards the fame of greatness would bring them nothing but self-destruction. They are humble because they were honed by their hard experiences, frustrations and disappointments. And so the humble are brought to greatness but the great are humbled.
Realizing these simple truths would never be appreciated if you haven’t gone through such experiences.
It takes lots of sacrifices to become a celebrity chef, how much it would be for those marked- The Greatest?
It takes lots of indispensable failures which would either destroy you or help you. If you really want to become the greatest celebrity chef then you would have to take the risks of becoming one. You have to face the fact that you’ll either be dumped as a failure or arise as a triumph. The truth is, unless you turn away from the good nature of your career and yourself, you would always be on track towards your career.
But you will always be prone to failure and you must accept this reality. Even the greatest loose the wick of their candles. All things end, even greatness. And the prominence of your career, if you become one of the greatest celebrity chefs, will have to end at some point. Sometimes, it dies its natural death, sometimes it dies due to ill choices. With good control and right disposition and heart, you are likely to fall on the latter. But before that even comes, you could have already enjoyed everything accompanying greatness.
On your way to greatness, bring with you all the good attitudes and gather everything that could help you on the travel. Never let ill decisions and unnecessary negative actions affect your career. Many will pour down on you but be sure to bring with you a well-guided heart.
Never let defeat conquer you instead do the opposite. Never put yourself into situations that could alter your course. Stay put, in case you falter then rise again. Don’t let failures overwhelm you; instead find the avenues towards real success.
And whatever you do, don’t let greatness eat and swallow you. Remember that you are not THE GREATEST celebrity chef, you are just among the few who have come to greatness in ways that only they could even recognize.
